The age of precision medicine is upon us. For some of the more challenging pediatric epilepsy syndromes such as tuberous sclerosis, Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet, there are now medications that are specifically approved to treat the seizures associated with them. Participants should be able to recognize syndrome-specific treatments, as well as potential risks for some of the most refractory epilepsies in pediatric patients.

This program is supported in part by an educational grant from Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc.
